Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral, 1963

Repost this day 2018:

The impressive Ukrainian (Greek) Catholic Church cathedral of #SaintsPeterandPaul in #NorthMelbourne. As the second most common religion from a country that we didn’t get a lot of immigration from, they found a good site and built big ! By church specialists #SmithandTracey, finished 1963. Patterned brick, thin shell arches, a stylised version of a Greek cross domed eastern church looming amongst the trees. Nice inside too. Great stylised iconostasis.

There’s an article from 2013 by the church about a visit by Salvador Camacho Bracero, who was in the office of Smith & Tracey at the time, who says he designed it. Here’s photos from then, including one of him.
